Kodagu district in South India is suffering from extreme deforestation

But Pamela Gale Malhotra and her husband, Anil Malhotra, decided to fight

So the couple co-founded SAI Sanctuary in 1991

Since then, they have been replanting trees and expanding the sanctuary. It now covers over 300 acres of wildlife

The area is home to more than 200 globally endangered species, including Asian elephants

“When we first came here, most of the lands that were sold to us, were abandoned lands”

“Abandoned rice fields, coffee, and cardamom fields as well”

“[It] took a lot of care, energy, and years to bring it back”

“I remember walking through the forest, you wouldn’t hear anything but the sound of your own feet”

“Now, the place is alive with sound”

Pamela hopes that the forest continues to be protected and expanded

“We both feel a tremendous amount of joy when we walk through the sanctuary”

“I’ve never felt this kind of joy in anything else that I’ve done in my life”
